The target locale of Word 2000-2003 file keeps changing after export or finalize in Studio 2014

I am a English-Korean translator. When I start a new project in Studio 2014 and add legacy Word files (2000-2003, .doc extension) or RTF files, it works fine. The problem arises when I export files or finalize to get the target translation. When I check the target .doc files, the locale is always changed to Arabian (Saudi Arabia). Even after I select all and change the language to Korean, it just turn back to Arabian. I don't have a slightest clue about Arabian language.
The is no problem with Word 2007-2013 (docx extension) files. Just the old Word files and RTF files. The difference between old Word and RTF files are the Korean characters broken in old Word file and displayed properly in RTF file. Could someone please shed me a light on this?
BTW, I'm running Studio 2014 SP2 and MS Office 2010 on Windows 7 32-bit Korean edition.
